I’m being overtaken with piles of unorganized messes. Here’s a picture worth many words. As you can tell from the chaos on one corner of my desk I have books to return, books to lend, notes to send, papers to throw away, lessons to prepare, lists of magazines to send articles, school papers to file, books to study and handwritten notes to put on a calendar. There are many good intentions scribbled on note cards that are left undone.
Peter F. Drucker once said, “Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.”
As you can imagine with this clutter overtaking me, I can’t think. You could say I’m easily confused when things are jumbled up! I don’t know the best place to start to turn these “intentions” into actions.
“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.” A. A. Milne, creator of Winnie-the-Pooh
So, I am taking a week off from blogging to catch up on what needs to be straightened up, cleaned up and organized here. I can not muddle around in this untidiness any longer.
I’m amazed at how quickly I’m overtaken with disorder if I don’t stay on top of it.
During my week off I’ll be painting a new picture – one of order, organization, and cleanliness!
If you have organizational or cleaning tips I’d love to hear them. Yes, please! Actually, it would be of great encouragement to me.
